Product description


JOHN MORROW'S - Random House - PICK OF THE WEEK - Merlin's School for Ordinary Children - The Ring of Curses.

All I can hope for is that there are more books coming to captivate me for times to come. This so cleverly written series of books tells readers about a very special school, situated within a castle, in a fishing village in Calder Cove. Calder Cove is an ordinary town full of ordinary people who have ordinary children living ordinary lives. Well, at least that's how it would seem, but nothing could be further from the truth.

This book is unputdownable and you'll find yourself sucked in, telling all sorts of little white lies about its whereabouts, until you come out of hiding to reveal its whereabouts, but not until you have finished the very last page.'

Review by Abbey Wynn - RACT - Journeys Magazine

Merlin's School for Ordinary Children - The Ring of Curses ...

Get your kids reading next school holidays with Tasmanian author Margaret R Blake's first published novel Merlin's School for Ordinary Children - The Ring of Curses.

Enter Merlin's magical castle and meet the weird headmaster and his peculiar teaching staff, along with Mrs Regina Wordsworthy the librarian, with her blue-rinsed hair and Mrs Flora Nettlewood the nurse, who reeks of camphor balls! There are no parents allowed and there is only one long school term.

All you need to bring is 'your toothbrush and a change of underwear'. It's a school year full of mystery that keeps you guessing as the students go on an extraordinary adventure to discover the secrets of the school.




About the Author

I'm British born, retired and now living in Queensland, Australia. I have survived childhood - falling out of trees, measles, chicken pox, mumps and siblings - also a myriad of other things like relationships and marriage, being tossed off a horse, a broken leg, a broken wrist, bad TV programs, bad food, bad company and a few other bad things, not necessarily in that order ... and reasonably well, even if I do say so myself. I have two gorgeous children - one of each and grown up and doing their own thing now. I have several t-shirts for being reasonably clever at various endeavors. In my spare time I like to do stuff with needles and pins, like sewing, embroidering and cross-stitch, and playing with pencils and crayons. I also like to read, and watch funny movies. And sometimes I like to be middle-aged so that I can frock up in an underdress and a kirtle, don a veil and wimple and go and hang out in a medieval village called Victory. I now live in a brick box with my teddy bear, Paddington.
